The return of . . . do dum, do dum, do, do do . . . (oh rats I just can't get the intro notes to Jaws right), the dreaded 'ponytail!'

Despite her obvious ability she does not dress formally enough and it just come down to the hair. It's sort of pull it back off my face, it'll be OK. Some people misconstrue it as a sign she is bored or just doesn't really care about her public appearances.

Exactly!
Besides for an evening event, she is very casual dressed. That´s office wear!
The female award winner is wearing an long evening dress and the crown princess, who should be the most regal of all, was coming in teacher blouse + skirt
Hopefully...next week...better

This was a very interesting article. It is nice to see CP Victoria involved in seminars like this. I know that she has done things with the UN before, but is this the first time that she has participated in discussions on peace and security?

She had attended a similiar course in May 2002. As much as I know this one was an addition to the other course.

Conflict resolution is a very tricky topic for Royals...as it´s hyper-politically.
But if she is really interested, I´d still wish, she would make something out of it. Would be part of high profile (UNO) conferences...and would visit successful projects on peace (keeping)...so that they would get more attention.

But so far it looks, as if there would be no thread in her work. She seems to attend courses, she is interested in, just to give awards on this&that with a big frog grin on her face.
Her big trips in 2008 were mainly about being there, and while climate research is important, I am wondering, when she would go to the next level: climate protection.

Thanks ursulajohanna! Nice to see HRH with the Serbian royals, crown princess Katherina always seems such a good natured lady. Victoria seems to be in a good mood, she is all smiles and looks rather pretty, dispite the trousers.
Any idea why she is opening this institute btw, did the Swedish state/charities invest in it perhaps?

Thank you for the links, iceflower.

Sigh...same dress for 2 award ceremonies during one season. Now one could say, I am superficial...but what is the point of all this, if mags don´t get interested.
Victoria had been patron of the Tobias foundation for more than 15 years. A great cause! A foundation raised after a boy having waited for a bone marrow donation - in vain. He had died age 17 in 1991.
But as it seems her complete involvement since 2000 had been this award, which she gave with ponytail and the same dress she had also chosen for an entrepreneur award less than 2 months ago.
This way hardly anyone would pay attention to bone marrow donation. Missed chance...but that´s normal for her these days. Go on...and say, she is sooo serious and sooo commited
I know crown princely comparisons are not popular...but Mary as consort somehow shows more commitment.
Now one could say Victoria´s role is different. Is it? And what would be the positive things, she had achieved in this difference.

Though I do not read Norwegian it seems the article is about Victoria, who in an interview compared her Scandinavian couterparts to older brothers, or something in that direction.
